What should I do if I’m injured in Warner Robins?
Injuries can happen in many ways and for many reasons—from a devastating car crash to a slip on a spilled drink in a fast food restaurant. Your injuries may heal quickly or may lead to permanent conditions. No matter how you are injured, you should do two major things to protect yourself:
- Don’t accept money or sign paperwork from an insurance company. Insurance companies like to offer money immediately after an injury. The thing about these offers is that they’re almost always way too low. You don’t even know the full extent of your injuries or the cost of your treatment. But if you take this quick money, you’ll have to sign away your right to recover anything else—even if you find out your injuries will cost far more than you originally thought. Get legal advice before you take money or sign anything.
- Meet with a personal injury lawyer. A good lawyer will consult with you for free, so there’s no risk involved. A personal injury lawyer knows the law, understands how insurance companies operate, and works on cases like yours every day. A lawyer can help you see whether you have a claim and can refer you to doctors who understand your condition and what it will cost. Having a lawyer on your side can mean tens of thousands of dollars more than that first insurance company offer.
How can I tell if I have a valid personal injury claim?
If you were injured through no fault of your own, you probably have a valid claim. This surprises many injury victims, who believe they must somehow be responsible, or that their injuries were somehow unavoidable. But under the law, most injuries are caused by someone’s negligence. If someone had been more careful, paying better attention, or following the law, the injury would never have happened. A negligent person isn’t necessarily hurting others on purpose, but when someone is negligent, they (or their insurance) are legally responsible for all the injuries and damage that happen because of it.
We frequently handle personal injury claims involving:
- Car, truck and other vehicle accidents
- Slip or trip and fall accidents
- Accidents where a car hits a bicyclist or pedestrian
- Injuries that happen during muggings
- Nursing home neglect
- Defective product claims
- Dangerous medical devices
- Harmful prescription medications
But these are just some of the most common types of personal injury claims. Almost any kind of injury can lead to a valid claim.
Will I have to sue someone for my personal injury claim?
Almost all personal injury claims are against insurance companies, not people—and many never involve lawsuits.
Sometimes, an insurance company does dig in its heels and refuse to negotiate. If this happens in your case, we will take the time to give you our best professional opinion about the strength of your case, your chances in court, and the risks involved. It’s always up to you to decide whether we file a case in the local courts, but if you do go to court, our litigation team will work hard for you.
Usually, though, we resolve claims with the insurance company before the case ever gets to court. At John Foy & Associates, we are known for our ability to be tough negotiators. We come to the bargaining table well prepared because we’ve already done our own investigation into your injuries and the way they happened. We give the insurance company a complete picture of your injuries and the full amount they will cost. This alone often convinces them to give you a large financial recovery.

What’s the deadline for making a personal injury claim in Warner Robins?

Deadlines vary depending on the details of your injury—you could have anywhere from a few months to two years to file your claim. It’s important that you don’t miss your deadline, however, or you will usually lose your right to recover any money at all. You need to see a personal injury lawyer as soon as you can.
